Teenage Kicks

Sometime in the autumn, we'll be publishing a book called 33 1/3 Greatest Hits, Volume One. This will feature extracts from the first twenty books in the series (from Dusty to the Ramones), and should sell for around $15 in paperback. More details to follow...

If you're under 21 years of age, your writing could be in this book, too. All you need to do is to write up to 2000 words about your favourite album (any album at all, no matter how recent or obscure - as long as it's not one of the twenty albums included in the book!) and email it to me by June 1st. The best essay will get published in the book, and there will also be a cash prize of $250 for the winner.

So, if you know of anyone who might be interested in this, (you, students of yours, nephews, nieces, babysitters, whatever!), please do spread the word.

Hey David it's Anthony, they guy you just sent those stellar books to. I'm 16 and I would probably be interested in this, but i might be really busy with school in the next while. Could you please fill me in with any info? Thank You!

A great idea and a great collection. I bought some of the books when I was in London last year. They´re impossibile to find here in my home country ( Portugal ).

About the contest, I´ll try but with your excelent choices you leave few possibilities out...

By the way, if you´re in Oporto, Portugal, and you want to go to a place where you can listen to good music ( from the 33´s you talk about ) try my bar. for all music lovers only.

does it have to be in strict essay form?

i'd love to do 2000 words about my favorite album in a slightly different format...
